La Simulation aux Grandes Echelles : un outil pour la prédiction des variabilités cycliques dans les moteurs à allumage commandé ?

Abstract : The improvement of the spark ignition engines is a major challenge for engineers in order to produce more energy, to minimize fuel consumption and to reduce the pollutant emissions. The new technologies which appear in the last years bring the engines closer to their stability limit while increasing various unwanted phenomena. Among these phenomena, cycle-to-cycle variation (CCV) need to be minimized in order to keep the performances as high as possible and avoid damages on the engines. Large Eddy Simulation (LES), which is a very promising tool in order to predict the level of CCV of a given engine, has been used in the present document to simulate a mono-cylinder spark ignition engine. The present document presented a numerical methodology for the prediction of CCV, numerous engine cycles were simulated by LES in order to validate the results in comparison to the experimental findings. The LES seems to be able to capture stable and instable (in terms of CCV) operating points of the engine. In addition, the sources of CCV were also analyzed and a modification of the engine has been proposed to reduce CCV.
